Configuring Pidgin 2.5.2 for Google Apps

Google's instructions for configuring Pidgin with Google Talk have a broken link to instructions for using Google Apps with a corporate domain.

So here's how I configured Pidgin to work with a corporate Google Apps account:

1. Select "Add/Edit" from the Accounts menu, then press the "Add" button.

2. Fill in fields on the basic tab.

* Protocol: XMPP
* Screen name: johndoe
* Server: example.com (Your domain name here)
* Resource: Home
* Password: ********
* Local alias: John

3. Fill in fields on the advanced tab.
* [ ] Require SSL/TLS
* [ ] Force old (port 5223) SSL
* [ ] Allow plaintext over unencrypted streams
* Connect port: 5222
* Connect server: talk.google.com
* File transfer proxies : proxy.jabber.org
* Proxy type: Use Global Proxy Settings


4. Press "Save".
